Do not bury me in a pair of dress shoes.

I never could stand them in life

I wore All-Stars most times,

Even at weddings, once or twice,

As I prefer.

Do not bury me in crisp white shirt.

I never did wear them in life

I wore t-shirts quite often,

Mostly ones cut for women,

As I prefer.

Do not bury me in a death-black suit.

I never did wear them in life

I wore skirts or jeans,

Or even dresses when I pleased,

As I prefer.

Do not bury me in consecrated ground.

It might start a fire.
